The CDC is now recommending wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies).

This could help to slow community-based transmission of COVID-19, however, it’s extremely important to remember that there is a right and a wrong way to wear a cloth mask. Improperly wearing a cloth mask could actually INCREASE your chances of infecting yourself with COVID-19. Before you head out with a cloth mask on, please check out this video that I made, which demonstrates how to properly wear one.
